I've got some that I bought, but I fancied having a go.

 

After 10 minutes of making, followed by 40 minutes of un-making and starting again, I'm beginning to question my decision.

 

(In truth, I think I'm just finding it awkward because I'm left handed, so to follow the videos, I'm having to do things "the wrong way round"..............either that or I'm just a cack-handed simpleton !)

Keep it up mate. I was taught by a lovely Welsh keeper when I was a lad. I still have the playing card gauge he gave me.

I make some every few years but have always forgotten the process in between.

Hemp twine only for me!

Any pictures fella?

I not saying it's too difficult to master, but the way I see it is how long will it take to get as good as some the guys on here, and for what they charge, atleast you know there knots won't slip lollol whearas we can spend an age on a net and then a couple a uses in they fall apart, not too hot if in front of a land owner lol

Is hemp better than spun poly ?

I keep getting foiled by the poly twisting on itself...........
